Wexford Sinn Féin to honour Bobby Sands

County Wexford Sinn Féin will commemorate the hunger striker patriot Bobby Sands in a vigil ceremony this Thursday night (5th May) on the thirtieth anniversary of his death.

A vigil will be observed from seven pm by the 1798 monument at the top of Gorey town to remember the MP who died on hunger strike in protest against Britain’s decision to remove political status for republican prisoners.

Members of the public are welcome to attend and observe this dignified gathering, and information packs on the 1981 hunger strikes are available from Wexford Sinn Féin for anyone wishing to learn more about this monumental event in our recent past.
